Hospital and Emergency Care
The inpatient portion of Children's Medical Center Plano features 72 beds, eight state-of-the-art operating rooms, 24/7 emergency services, and full-service laboratory, pharmacy and imaging services. Children’s Medical Center Plano was designed with patients and families in mind, down to the sparkle in the floor and the large kinetic sculpture hanging in our main atrium.
With the leaves of a 100+ year-old oak tree blowing in the breeze, horses grazing in the adjacent field and a stream bubbling through our outdoor patio, the soothing feeling of nature is all around you at Children’s Medical Center Plano. Patient rooms, family rooms and waiting areas all include large windows that allow for a view of the outside and for the natural light to spill through the halls.
The campus also features a robust family resource library, where patients and families have access to consumer health information, children's literature plus leisure and research material. In addition, we offer highly trained child life specialists to help with any other needs, designated playrooms just for kids, translation services, pastoral care and guest relations services.
